    12 Ways to be Transformed by the Renewing of Our Mind

    Renewal begins by offering up our whole body, soul, mind and spirit to the Lord. Luke 10:27 tells us, “And he answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind…” It takes a conscious effort to present oneself to the Lord by disciplining ourselves for godliness.

    For I am persuaded that neither death nor life... nor height nor depth... shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Kay Arthur says that when the devil tries to make us doubt God's love, we have some good answers for him: "Tell Satan that God loves you when you are nothing, accepts you just the way you are, and loves you with an everlasting, unconditional love that is in the process of transforming you into His image. Tell the devil that you are secure in God's love "because the love of God has been poured out within your heart through the Holy Spirit who was given to us," and "nothing can separate you from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." 1

    That's a pretty good answer, but perhaps we're the ones needing to hear it. Maybe you need to remind yourself of these truths. When the psalmist said, "Why are you cast down, O my soul?... Hope in God" (Psalm 42:11), he was talking to himself. Preach this message to yourself: We cannot slip out of the grip of God's grace. We can rest assured that no one can snatch us out of His hand (John 10:28).

    God does not love us because we are valuable, but we are valuable because God loves us.
